Command & Conquer: Generals Review

Generals has been a well hyped game, eagerly waited by the many CandC fans (myself included). It has promised advanced gameplay and superior graphics, but has it delivered??

Highland Warriors Review

In conclusion, Highland Warriors is a game probably best enjoyed by any users new to this style of game - veteran players will complete the game within 48 hrs & remove it from their drive.

Trevor Chan's Restaurant Empire Review

In conclusion, Restaurant Empire provides a classic brunch overall: not quite breakfast and not quite lunch but still a good meal with a slice of melon.

Warrior Kings Review

From the outset this game has been fairly heavily advertised via TV & PC magazines & I was waiting with baited breath to get my copy - to try something that promised to be ‘that bit different’.

Civilization: Call to Power 2 Review

The bottom line is that the game isn't a bit challenging, and it doesn't make any sense to play an empire game in an environment where you won't have any real competition.

Stronghold Review

There are a number of minor problems with Stronghold, the new real-time strategy from Firefly Studios/Godgames. However, these flaws don't detract from what is, overall, a thoroughly entertaining experience.

World War II: Panzer Claws Review

Apart from the excellent ‘Commandos’ series, I had never really considered Eidos when looking for a new strategy game - they tend to get pigeonholed with Lara Croft & the like. Then I saw this game, was intrigued & then totally hooked - it rocks!

Stronghold: Crusader Review

About a year ago Firefly Studios, Stronghold hit the store shelves. With very little anticipation and not a great deal of press, Stronghold managed to soar into the RTS limelight and gather in a great following.

Commandos 2: Men of Courage Review

Pyro Studios latest addition to the Commandos family takes the series to a whole new level. It is a delectable feast of military planning and execution which rewards the patient and contemplative gamer with hours and hours of tactical fun.

Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom Review

Do eastern civilizations charm you? Did you always want to travel to China but never really got around to do it?

Trade Empires Review

Many strategy games incorporate trade as one of the central challenges for the player to overcome in building an empire. But perhaps none re-creates the art of buying low and selling high in such detail as Trade Empires.

Conquest: Frontier Wars Review

Better late than never--that well-worn phrase has been granted new life by Conquest: Frontier Wars, a real-time strategy game set in space that spent much of this year without a home.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos Review

Warcraft was the game that turned the strategy world upside down. It impacted the game world like Dune II did. This third part of Warcraft was named Warcraft III: The Reign of Chaos.

O.R.B. Review

Decent space strategy games are few & far between - nearly all of the Star Wars clones etc are a real disappointment so its nice to find a game that looks like it could be a contender for the No. 1 slot.
